If Ed Joyce’s century in the context of a 20-wicket opening day was remarkable, then it was trumped yesterday by Ian Bell, whose 46th first-class hundred has so transformed this match that Sussex, who appeared at one stage almost to be nailed-on winners inside two days, could conceivably find themselves beaten in three.
Batsman of the day
Having beaten Middlesex effectively in two days once the weather cleared at Hove last week, Sussex are threatening to do something similar to Warwickshire, the 2012 County Champions, as they attempt to set a testing early pace in the 2014 race.
Whoever you bowl against in Championship cricket you will try to target their best players because if you can put scars on them along the way you know it will help your team's cause. Naturally, in the Warwickshire game this week, one guy we will be targeting is Jonathan Trott. We would do that anyway, whatever the circumstances. Along with Ian Bell, he is one of their best batsmen.
Kevin Pietersen has given further hints that he is intent on reviving his international career.
